Beginner weapon?

Okay I still doing my research and planning, need some opinions on the following airsoft gun. So far I have narrow down quite a bit of choice from the:
Motor: EG1000
Brand: TM and CA only (don't want defects simple)
Weapon Role (CQC, RCON, Assault, Spotter etc although I'm haven't understand that part yet)
Personal Preference
NO: Sniper/MG, M14, M4, Mp5, 'Terrorist weapon'
Prefer: Good range, Semi-Transparent magazine, Dummy bullet included
*I know right now P90's LBV Mag pouch is going to be a little harder to find compare to other two weapon which STANAG pouch will do
*I'm not planning to upgrade the internal parts in the beginning


Choices I need help on:
TM P90 (integrated sights, Scope are too expensive)
TM SIG552 (With upgrade Rail and Reflex Sight)
CA G36 or CA G36K (integrated sights, Scope are too expensive)
TM G36C (with Reflex sight)

It would be great put why that weapon is good (upgradability, accuracy)

'Scopes' are not too expensive. If you can afford to put a RDS on a TM G36C, you can afford to put one on a CA G36C. Key thing to consider is that stock scopes usually have very poor eye relief and stock RDS aren't that bright or sharp.

Any of the weapons you listed are great. They all perform pretty similarly, since they're all running mini batteries and except P90 uses version 3 mechbox. I would hold them in person and let ergonomics and aesthetics be the deciding factors.

I would recommend a Classic Army G36K or a G36C, depends what your doing, G36C is mainly for CQC, but it doesnt really make a difference.

I Assume you're talking about RDS = Red Dot Sight
Is there any cheap ones you personally recommend or use? Keep in mind I'm keeping the initial budget of the airsoft weapon gear under 1.5k (about 500$ to wearing gear)

Scopes that are real, costs a well over $500.

A good RDS is a Aimpoint Replica from G&P. Cheap, and material is made metal. As a beginner, you don't need to buy accessories that are worth over hundreds.

1.5k? That's plenty. I would personally recommend some sort of replica aimpoint. Doesn't really matter which brand, though just to throw a name out, let's say King Arms.

Another type of red dot to look at depending on your taste in looks would be the Walther or Tasco made ones. Walther is by far thge better of the two and the more expensive. The Tasco one is ok for the price (around 40 bucks) and easy to set up/zero. I would personally suggest a cheaper but functional Red Dot if that's the way you're going. Get used to the way that they work before you go too expensive.

G36c by TM or poor boys JG G36c.

I have a multirec red dot on it $50. Nothing too facy for airsoft. CQB not shooting far at all most of the time.

looks like this http://www.theshootersbox.com/store/...adot_panav.jpg

Now I am going to cut out a lense protector from an old polycarb safety glasses for the RDS.

Well if wasnt for the Tariff Canada Border setup I wouldnt have to pay for that much x.x (Req licence to import aka Tariff)
Equalivent in US is about 600$ but in Canada here a lil more expensive... say 3 times that amount. (NOT JOKING)
All the Aim point I've found so far atleast 200$ mininium, I want a ELCAN but that thing cost $400 80% cost of the airsoft gun I mention above. so far unless IM forced to use extra sight I would use the Red Dot Reflex 125$
